‘Antifa’ Gear No Longer Available on Walmart Website
‘Antifa’ clothing is no longer available on Walmart’s website as of Saturday afternoon. The clothing’s third-party manufacturer, TEE Bangers LLC, also appears to have pulled the line promoting the far-leftist group whose activities were “formally classified” by the Obama Administration “as domestic terrorist violence.”
As recently as Saturday morning, Breitbart News reported that the mega-retailer was offering at least 13 different “made in Mexico” sweatshirts that would “[allow you to] express yourself inside the opposition to the ideology, organizations, governments and people from the far right (fascism).”
Walmart appears to have also removed former Occupy Wall Street organizer Mark Bray’s book Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook from its website. Bray’s “justification for stifling speech and clobbering white supremacists” makes the book “most relevant for today,” writes Washington Post book critic Carlos Lozada.
Breitbart News has reached out to both Walmart and TEE Bangers LLC for comment. As of publication, neither were available.
On its website, TEE Bangers LLC offers a variety of shirt options from across the political spectrum, including those with “I love Fidel Castro,” “Black Power,” and “Deplorables for Trump” messages.
Walmart came under fire earlier this week, pulling a shirt bearing the words “Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required” from its website following a complaint from a journalist advocacy group.
“This item was sold by a third-party seller on our marketplace and clearly violates our policy,” Walmart said in a statement addressing the lynching t-shirt, according to CBS News. “We removed it as soon as it was brought to our attention, and are conducting a thorough review of the seller’s assortment.”
